Pancake Blueberry Muffins, Breakfast For Lunch {with recipe}

I have a couple of sheep themed lunches to post, but I just found out that today is pancake day and I decided to post this pancake bento first. We love muffins at anytime of the day and we are also huge fans of breakfast for lunch. I love the idea of baking several batches at a time and freezing the extras for super busy mornings, when we need a grab and go.These particular ones were baked yesterday and I've left some out for the next morning, the rest went into the freezer. As I have promised earlier to share the recipe, scroll down and you'll find it.

This recipe is one of our longtime family favorites. There are so simple to make, you get the ease of a muffin with the deliciousness of a pancake. There are gazillions of yummy pancake recipes out there but this one works for me, it's simple and I mostly have the ingredients on hand.

Pancake blueberry muffins, breakfast for lunch, recipe

I usually add frozen organic blueberries, strawberries and chocolate chips. You can also use bacon, ham and sausage pieces if you prefer adding meat.

Here is the recipe which I added blueberries.

  • 2 cups Original Bisquick mix or any other brand that you prefer.
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • Blueberries
  • Pam non-stick cooking spray or muffin cups.
  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. In medium bowl, stir together pancake mix and remaining ingredients (except blueberries) until moistened. Do not over-mix.
  3. Spoon batter into greased or paper lined muffin pan, filling ¾ full. Add blueberries in each cup leaving space in between them.
  4. There is enough batter to fill one dozen muffin wells.
  5. Bake at 350º for 13-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
Easy right? I included a couple of them with super cute Mickey and Minnie picks, in Nikolai's Easylunchboxes. He also had strawberries, seedless black grapes, granola bar cut into half and Greek yogurt with pure maple syrup in his leakproof mini-dipper.
I also made a batch the other day with heart shaped strawberries and you can find one which I included in Nikolai's school lunch here.

Here are the supplies or similar that I used to create and pack this lunch.
